Nancy - I think there are two issues. The first has to do with the news. Most of us here know pretty much what is going on where. For example, the information Norma gave was wellknown much before the post. And, what is the point of posting about something happening on a private ranchito miles from La Manz or, for that matter, Melaque? There is a sensationalistic quality to it that would leave the casual reader (who doesn't know our area) with the sense that violence is rampant, when, in fact, it is not. It hurts our business owners when people google and read this crap as though it is relevant to them or their visits.
On the other hand, the posts about road dangers, whether they are criminal or natural or temporary, are useful, if people are traveling those roads.
Perhaps, for the folks who can't seem to get enough of the grotesque or are titillated by danger (or the appearance of it for others), we should have two separate areas for posting. One could be entitled GRUESOME NEWS THAT IS NOT VERY RELEVANT TO ANYTHING HAPPENING ON THE BEACH and the other could be called ROAD HAZARDS.
